After all the hype it’s hard to believe we’ve reached the end of the London 2012 Olympic games; and what a games it’s been for Team GB! With more medals under our belts than we’ve had in over a century, we’ve smashed targets and exceeded all expectations in our golden performances at the games.
The Olympic closing ceremony highlights the end of London 2012 and celebrates the incredible achievements of our athletes.
It will also mark the handover of the games to Rio de Janeiro, where the Olympics will be held in 2016.
The ceremony follows the theme ‘A Symphony of British Music’, celebrating another talent that Britain has to offer. As well as the promise of great music from the London Symphony Orchestra, the ceremony will feature a march of the athletes, flags and speeches, and the iconic extinguishing of the Olympic flame.
After such a roaring success from Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic games, we can be sure that the closing ceremony will not disappoint and will be just the celebration that our country deserves!
